Purpose statement: The purpose of this study is to inform the aspects of hypertension crisis developed in Haiti and thus to draw appropriate attention given to rural areas of Haiti and Haitian. Methodology: This is a descriptive, comparative, and correlational study. 277 male/female Haitians who were older than 18 years old and lived in rural areas were included into sample. It was a convenience sampling. The sample was collected in four different rural areas in Haiti from Jan 1 thru Jan 9th, 2014. The subjects who voluntarily walked into a free health clinic were screened with blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic blood pressure), pulse pressure, and heart rate. Descriptive analyses and t-test were used to achieve the study objectives. Results: 83% of the total sample showed either pre-hypertensive or moderate to severe hypertensive condition. 65% of them were having abnormal Pulse Pressure (PP>50) and 14% of the sample showed tachycardia (HR >100). Hypertensive condition was significantly differed by gender and village. Conclusion: The statistics of hypertension in Haiti is significant and the majority of study subjects have abnormal pulse pressure, which will be a significant risk factor of coronary artery disease in the near future among this population. In addition, more investigation should be conducted for the unknown reason of tachycardic condition. Overall, proper global attention should be given to this minority country and the people.
